Biden and his shifting goalposts on schools

"So if that works that way, as my mother would say with the grace of God, and the goodwill of the neighbours, that by next Christmas, I think, we'll be in a very different circumstance, God willing, than we are today", he said.

To enable schools to open and remain open, the CDC said it's important to adopt and consistently implement actions to slow the spread of COVID-19, both in schools and in the community.

"For four years, all that's been in the news is Trump". Authorities should "move them up in the hierarchy".

Biden also said that he wanted a faster return of children to schools and that he backs vaccinations for teachers. Comforting a second-grader who hasn't been able to go school and was anxious about getting the virus, Biden told the girl that children are less likely to get infected, adding, "I wouldn't worry about it, baby, I promise you". "I point out to him, no American president can be sustained as a president if he doesn't reflect the values of the United States, and so the idea that I'm not going to speak out against what he's doing in Hong Kong, what he's doing with the Uighurs in western mountains of China, and Taiwan, trying to end the One China Policy by making it forceful, I say - and by the he says - he gets it".

Biden's comments came as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration will increase the vaccine supply to states to 13.5 million doses per week, up from 11 million last week.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, told CNN prior to the town hall that the general public likely won't have access to the vaccine until May or June, pushing back earlier estimates that the vaccine would be available to all Americans by April. We've been much more prescriptive here, as to putting some guardrails on what can and should be done, in order to get to a safe reopening. "Even though we don't feel that every teacher needs to be vaccinated before you can open a school, that doesn't take away from the fact that we strongly support the vaccination of teachers". "Teachers should be a priority", Harris said.

"Tomorrow, the CDC is going to roll out their operating plan to give school districts, local communities, the guidance they need to know to begin to do that and to begin to do that aggressively", Slavitt said.

Experts believe the US economy will improve when students get back to school.

Biden added that the bulk of the 600 million people who want to get vaccinated will be able to do so "in the meantime" rather than have to wait until the end of July.

US President Joe Biden participates in a televised town hall event at Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee. "The next four years I want to make sure all the news is the American people", Mr. Biden said.

Biden also responded to a question about his Justice Department indicting former President Donald Trump for his involvement in the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

"One of the most serious pieces of damage done by the last administration was the politicising of the Justice Department", he said.

Biden agreed that the process of signing up to be vaccinated was confusing.
